If you’re looking forward to getting into the Halloween spirit, then this week’s Pokémon Go is for you.

Here’s our rundown of all the changes happening in Pokémon Go this week:

Misdreavus is the focus of the Spotlight Hour

This week’s Spotlight Hour is Tuesday, October 18, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time.

Misdreavus is in the spotlight this week, and with so many around, it’s an easy chance to evolve into Mismagius.

Misdreavus have a higher chance of shining during Spotlight hour, so there’s a good chance of catching a green one.

As a bonus, double experience points are also awarded for each Pokémon caught.

Xerneas joins the raid lesson again

This week’s Raid Hour will take place on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time.

Just like last week, Xerneas will be the featured Pokemon in this week’s Raid Hour.

It will appear in all Gyms in five-star raids during this time, with the possibility of being shiny once defeated.

On Thursday, Giratina Altered Forme will take over the raids, so this is your best chance to catch a shiny stag.

Halloween Event 2022 starts in Pokemon Go

This first part of this month’s Halloween event begins on Thursday, October 20, 2022 at 10 a.m. local time.

From Thursday through October 27th, Mega Banette will be added to the game for the first time.

Shiny forms of Noibat and Galarian Yamask will also make their first appearances in the game.

Other spooky Pokemon like Zubat, Gastly, Golett, Phantump, and Pumpkaboo will also appear more frequently during the event.

The Go Battle League will switch on Thursday 20th October 2022 at 21:00 UK time.

This week, the Great League returns, but the Master League will step down in exchange for the Halloween Cup.
